Affinity Water installing water meters

We thought you’d like to know that letters from Affinity Water are being distributed to warn that properties without water meters are going to have them installed. This is not a scam and it’s not an option. Here’s the relevant bit of the text:

“Your meter will be fitted free of charge and you can continue paying on a non-metered basis for up to two years after we fit it. During this year, we’ll send you information on how much water you’re using, with handy tips on saving water and money. You can switch to metered billing early at any point, please contact us on 0345 357 2403 You will automatically be switched to metered billing two years after your meter is installed.”
